World's Scariest Otaku

>Could you explain to us why this fan was so mad?

Didn't like the fact that Kuroneko (gothic looking girl FYI) was getting more focus.

Yeah, it says that in the article you linked, but without knowing any of the context of the series that doesn't help me understand anything.

So I was browsing HLJ's list of new book releases, and found this:

What's next, pictures by fujoshis of their hug pillow husbandos sitting on a chair 'sharing' a meal?

oh hawt
I saw a booth at SakuraCon where you could have a hump pillow made right there. They had about 30 different cases to chose from. It was in the same aisle as all the clubbing crap booths and other non-anime shit people try to hawk (aka The Aisle Of Everything That Is Wrong With The World). I'm sure Daryl will rant about it on a podcast in the near future. ;)

Well Kirino (which is the little sister the title is about) has a (non sexual) fetish for little sisters and likes anime about them along with a magical girl anime Meruru. Ironic in that she treats her actual older brother like shit for most of the series. Basically represents the moe fan.

Kuroneko doesn't see Kirino eye to eye on this as she is meant to represent the "anime is serious business" fan and pokes out plot holes when she and Kirino watch Meruru together. She changes her mind a bit when she notices her own little sister likes Meruru.

Another character Ayase just a plain bitch.

naw

he and Tim Eldred were on the ANNcast recently talking about their top ten 80's animue

I'm not sure I agree with Mr. Eldred's claims that both Galient, Vifam, and Votoms are "hard sci-fi"

I think the robots preclude that :v
I think that's implied: "hard sci-fi (with the exception of unbelievable, but sweet ass robots)".

He also said Layzner was hard sci-fi


yeah about that
You have draconian standards.

When the alien invaders are headed up by a guy with beautiful 80's hair who is voiced by Kaneto Shiozawa, you've forfeited all claims to hardness
Pretty sure you can't be hard without beautiful 80's hair. It's the benchmark.

So this murder-threatening fan is mad because the creator of his favorite lolicon series has been giving too much attention to a character who represents an intellectual otaku who mocks mindless fanboys. That's... beautiful.

"hard SF" implies some use of actual science, at the very least. I find it difficult to think of any anime that fits the bill. Planetes, maybe LoGH?

-Paul Segal

"Oh, the anger is never far, never far." -SteveH
LoGH is about space Germans fighting space America with battle ships that use very 2d tactics while sometimes using vague FTL and vague particles that somehow justify dudes invading ships while wielding battle axes as effective means to do so

but i guess one time they had redshift when they sent chunks of ice going really fast :d


also they have starfighters

My guess is it might be because Kuroneko hooks up with the main character for a while (Kirino's brother) instead of the incest pairing of Kirno and her brother.

Actually. I've only seen the anime which is where my knowledge of the franchise is. Never read any of the light novel material. It's getting a another season.

so you're saying there are NO hard sf anime

-Paul Segal

"Oh, the anger is never far, never far." -SteveH
No I'm saying LoGH is pretty clearly in the "space opera" mindset

which means fatty nerds will lust for it and pine for the supposed death of that genre

honestly LoGH is pretty goofy about its space stuff sometimes

for example in terms of logistics...

after the the Free Planets Alliance spearheads into space german territory, the germans launch an attack to cut off the FPA's supply lines

so out of desperation the crews of the FPA fleet's building sized spaceships go out and steal bread and chickens from local farmers

like i appreciated your directorial touch on this show Ishiguro-sama, but I think you're stretching metaphors a bit :v
"which means fatty nerds will lust for it"

Que?

Planetes.

I have a hard time coming up with anything else.

Patlabor if you remove most sophisticated humanoid designs?

Not grasping the idea of unrealistic sci-fi; "fi" in the name denotes made up shit.

---------------------------------
[pgaijin.blogspot.com]
It's not hard to come up with examples that clearly show a division between realistic and unrealistic sci-fi.

Planetes, for instance, or Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, could easily happen in the relatively near future (within a hundred years, perhaps, given a favorable political climate for space exploration). Events proceed in accordance with the laws of physics as they are understood at the time of publication. When fictional technology is introduced, it's done so with some underpinning in scientific fact. The narrative as a whole is conscious of its own plausibility.

Something like Star Wars, however, is dependent on a whole array of things which are purely speculative - which are not known to be possible, and which may not be physically possible at all.

Most sci-fi falls somewhere in between, though. Even in a setting that takes most of its inspiration from extrapolation of the real world, the drive to provide excitement and tension so often leads to the introduction of unexplained or inexplicable elements...

Haha, indeed! But so much of Patlabor's background and setting is there to justify the idea that humanoid Labors are somehow more useful than cars or dump trucks or forklifts or cranes.

-Paul Segal

"Oh, the anger is never far, never far." -SteveH
I understand that. What I should have said was that I don't see the reasoning behind classifying something at varying levels of "sci-fi" based on the degree of believability. Sucks the fun out of it, for me. Then again, I don't like arguing minutiae. To each their own.

Hard SF anime?

How about Wings of Honneamise? :D

Moonlight Mile has entire episode plots around realistic use of physics. Mind you, I'm not finished watching it though.

Lots of real-type mecha shows have hard SF trappings, some would be decent enough as hard SF if you just removed the toy/plamo hooks, or nearly so.

As for Votoms, it uses the mechs in more or less a believable manner, even if the mechs themselves fall a bit short of full believability. Though it always bothered me that the rest of the tech in Votoms (other than the interstellar travel) is pretty much 20th century more or less. Utilitarian, sure, but you'd think that the advances suggested by the ATs themeselves would manifest in other hardware and have other benefits.

There's a fair amount of relatively recent SF anime that are more based in near-future augmented reality, virtual reality, and so forth that are often more cyberpunk or transhumanist in nature and skirt the edge of what I'd also consider hard SF.

I'm pretty sure there's some other "hard SF" anime out there that I've seen, but I'll need some time to think about it. To be fair, much of the point of anime is to make the fantastical seem believable, which is a bit at cross purposes to true hard SF storytelling. I do think there's a sliding scale here though, if we are to say, differentiate between "hard SF in popular media" versus "hard SF in literary fiction" and relative hardness in comparison to the rest of the examples in each subgenre.

Wouldn't that presuppose that that...thing...was somehow arousing?
